Late Summer Peace
Sunday, August 08, 2010      1 comments

When this time of year arrives, I always feel peaceful inside. When I was growing up, we would travel to my granparents' house. Their front porch is my profile picture. The house was big and old and didn't have air conditioning, only big window ... Read more
Little fire, big stress
Monday, April 19, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday turned into a very stressful day when I turned on the oven to start dinner and the control panel burst into flames. Big flames! Three fire engines and lots of big scary firemen came to help, but everything was all right. I told them I ... Read more
Reflecting on 2009
Monday, December 28, 2009      2 comments

What complicated times we live in! I am trying to hone down into one or two paragraphs the most important things to reflect upon from 2009, and I have come to the conclusion that I can't do that. So I'll reflect, basically, on that. I have ... Read more
Keeping on and feeling wonderful

It might have something to do with a lowered stress level, just maybe...but I do feel a lot more positive and stronger. I'm proud of myself for keeping up the running/walking program on the treadmill. I haven't lost an ounce...sadly...but tha... Read more
It takes all the running I can do just to stay in one place

That quote has summed it up for me for a long time, as far as my life goes. What it means to me is that I have to work my hardest and try my best just to keep things as they are. Think along the lines of vacuuming, cooking/eating/cleaning up/coo... Read more

December has a lot of things to look forward to: Christmas, Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa, snow, Christmas lights, parties, lots of food, little time for exercising... I have to try to stick with my program! I have to get healthier! I have a ... Read more
OK, what is this?

Autumn is a beautiful time of year, and usually it makes me happy. But, for some reason, I have been down in the dumps lately. Last night I decided I needed some accomplishment, so I hung up a picture. Great. That did help! Today I visited a... Read more
Ups and downs of weight and mood
Saturday, September 26, 2009      3 comments

I am currently up, but my weight is slightly down. Working like crazy, painting the rooms in my house, is making me feel wonderful! It's so pretty, and it keeps me from drifting to the snacks. I noticed that when my weight went up a little... Read more

A new day, a new beginning, and a new 2 pounds lost! I am going to start concentrating on the little victories rather than lamenting the setbacks. I went to a convention this past weekend that inspired me and gave me an opportunity to enjoy... Read more
Maybe if I don't think about it all the time, I'll lose weight
Sunday, August 02, 2009      2 comments

Since I am constantly aware that I feel "fat", I think I might be sabotaging myself. It seems like if I concentrate on enjoying the moment, and if I try to make choices that won't make me beat myself up emotionally at the end of the day (chocola... Read more
Sidelined again!

I have injured a muscle in my back. Rats. I had such great momentum going! Pretty sure it wasn't from the exercise or the ski machine. I think it was from the summertime puppet shows that I do at work. We take our show on the road and perform 8 ... Read more

What have I learned from all this blogging?
Monday, May 18, 2009      2 comments

I have learned that I rarely put myself first. I defer to my husband's lifestyle preferences (eating out and having a more sedentery lifestyle), I give my time to my kids when they are around, I work very hard and I'm exhausted when I get home -... Read more
Why do I want to eat healthy?
Sunday, May 17, 2009      1 comments

I like eating healthy; that's the best reason. I like to cook, and it's so rewarding to create meals that people enjoy. Convenience food is not that tasty compared to what I call real food, and it really isn't as good for you. I personally... Read more
